The talented Mr. Lee
Within a year, designer Daniel Lee has become one of the most influential representatives of his profession and has made the Bottega Veneta brand the number one topic of conversation in the industry. No less than four awards at the British Fashion Awards are additional proof of the brand’s current relevance. It is this new spirit that is also reflected in the current spring/summer collection: radically fashionable! From body-hugging rib-knit dresses to leather pants and trench coats, it is above all the accessories that have made the greatest headlines.Especially noteworthy is “The Chain Pouch”, the successor of the famous “The Pouch”.
The bag with the carrying chain skilfully picks up on the codes of the previous model and refines them with this dominant element. Inspired by the art of jewelry and made with the same precision and dedication, it is an ideal contrast to its subtly gathered leather, which is also available in several versions for example in soft mustard yellow, bold orange, or exotic zebra pattern.
A number of style icons have already made “The Pouch”, their constant companion. For example, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley stated on the record, that she calls a large part of the fashion and accessory line, her own. It has also been spotted on the arms of Diane Kruger, Lily Aldrige, Rihanna, Sofia Richie, and Salma Hayek Pinault. Thanks to its new, practical chain carrier, the number of its famous fans should increase even further.
